Diamondback Mission Pro 27.5" 2016 Bike

A True All-Mountain Machine.

Five minutes on the Diamondback Mission Pro 27.5 and you'll feel like nothing short of an elite rider. Packing 160mm of point-and-shoot full suspension travel, this 27.5” wheeled all-mountain bike wants to tear into rough, steep terrain, looking for hits and drops that would surely have the amateurs searching for a B-line. Crushing it downhill is one thing, but the aspiring enduro racer needs to be able to climb efficiently too. Not a problem for the Mission Pro! The Fox equipped Knucklebox Migration suspension design reduces pedal induced motion without compromising small bump compliance, delivering you to the top efficiently and comfortably so you have more energy for another rip back down. The Mission takes advantage of the growing popularity of the 27.5" wheel size with this latest version, offering a ride that splits the difference of 29" and 26" wheels, giving you the best of both worlds. With 27.5", you retain the snappy handling of 26" wheels combined with the added obstacle clearance and acceleration typical of the 29er platform. Get on board, this ride is taking off and you don't want to be left behind!

For 2016, Diamondback is shaking up the suspension game with their newly improved Knucklebox platform. We are now in the era of KnuckleBox Migration. This means that Diamondback has refined the KnuckleBox platform to leverage even more performance from their already proven design. By migrating all the suspension components forward in the frame, travel is increased to 160mm and plenty of room is made for nimble, fast rolling 27.5” wheels. A newly designed, inverted KnuckleBox linkage and DB's proprietary single sided hardware round out this impressive new signature all-mountain, full suspension ride.

The KnuckleBox, or bell crank, is the core of Diamondback's single-pivot, four-bar suspension platform. Optimally placed pivots equate to a low leverage ratio, and ultimately to superior pedaling efficiency and small-bump compliance. This also allows the shock to work more efficiently and reduces pedal induced motion. It further reduces overall load on the system promoting improved shock and bearing life. Placing the KnuckleBox low within the frame lowers the bike’s center of gravity allowing it to track and corner better.

Wheel rate is the effective spring rate measured at the wheel, and it is a crucial aspect when considering suspension systems. A benefit of the KnuckleBox four-bar linkage is increased control over the wheel rate. Diamondback works closely with Fox, first obtaining the spring rate curves of their shocks so they can then optimize their wheel rates to be linear, to slightly progressive. The resulting ride yields superb small bump compliance, more perceived travel, and excellent bottom-out protection.

For the Pro level build, Diamondback chose to incorporate an array of high performance components that compliment and further enhance the impeccable design of the Mission 27.5. Suspension duties are handled beautifully by a plush pair from Fox Racing Shox. A Fox 36 Float Factory fork with 160mm travel, soaks up everything from small bumps to daring drops and rock gardens.The rear Fox Float X2 keeps things tame in the rear, offering the same convenient adjustment and plenty of travel to absorb anything that comes your way.

The Mission Pro's drivetrain combines a handful of industry leading components, resulting in a pedaling platform that shreds as hard as you plan to push it. Shimano XT derailleurs, shifter, and 11-speed cassette form the core of the Mission Pro's drivetrain. The XT crankset delivers all the power you need to climb efficiently and hammer through speedy sections of the trail. The XT 11-speed system is a proven winner at a humbler price point. The perfect blend of performance and practicality, the Mission Pro's XT drivetrain is the steady heartbeat of the bike. Shimano XT M800 hydraulic disc brakes offer all of the stopping power needed to handle daring terrain and modulate speed through tricky descents. The Mission Pro rolls confidently on a rock-solid set of Easton Heist tubeless ready wheels paired with a set of the venerable Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5 x 2.35" tires.
